    Quick recap, what are the forces at our disposal at the moment?

    Ultimately it seems it was our fault that Schalk was not disciplined properly. Time to correct that, really the squadas, inform the HQ of the fucking problem we got into and go for B, even if it looks suicidal it is well in character. Flamers are gone apart from Kirchhoff?

    A. Having the character survive this time would be good :p

    We may or may not have a fate point, we must play Shepard in character. They took us by surprise, but now we know what we're dealing with.

    If we flip flop and Shepard runs away, ie: voting A, we're more likely to get fucked.

    Our moral tendency is zealous hatred, our mind is a fortress and we have 5 squads to come back us up if we need them. This is an IG ship and we're not guaranteed the Inquisitor can help us.

    Ps. They took us by surprise, and as Groshaw asked, how did we survive that shot? Don't you think Schalk probably expects us to be dead? He's an abhuman, not an Astartes. 2 Space marines will be a problem, but Schaefer if he still has a fate point, and his glorious eviscerator, might be able to do something about them. We might also still have our heavy flamer.

    Guys. I know you want to be brave and all. But we have what, 25 flashlights and a flamer? They have power armor, bolters, and a sorceror with the mark of nurgle. If we engage, our skulls will likely be crushed under their iron bootheels.

    I am having an incredibly hilarious deja vu here, so I'll just abstain from voting this time around :smug:

    We have a heavy flamer, an eviscerator, a mind like a fortress and hopefully a fatepoint.

    If we'd spent it earlier this may never have happened though.

    Ah, the classic dilemma of "die with your balls vs. live without them, which is better and why?"

    Also, Shepard/Schafer is supposedly a more than able strategist, and an excellent hand to hand combatant. Yes, we can't grapple with a heavy bolter, but all we need is to get close enough to the sorcerer to eviscerate him, while the heavy flamers pourge and scourge the nurglites.

    They took us by surprise last time, they won't be expecting a) Schafer survived or b) that if he did, he'd come back with the rest of the IG to make a counter attack.

    The more tme we give them, the greater the possibiility the sorcerer will summon more daemons through the teleportarium or from the warp and if the ship is overrun, the ground assault will fail and the planet will have to go to exterminatus.

    y u troll meh :( pl0x explain

    Edit: Also, remember, last time we decided to puss out (with the first char) we didn't interrupt the ritual and this whole mess got worse and led to gg for that char.

    So far, apart from not going to refinery, Shepard has not pussed out of anything. If we puss out now, it's character flopping and more likely, according to root's early posts, to lead to defeat. Consistency is key.

    root also made it clear that if we'd gone to refinery we'd have earned a second fatepoint early on, because it was a balls to the wall guts or glory decision.

    Root also made it clear that we aren't a space marine, that playing Schaefer as a one-dimensional character isn't a cheat code, and that boldly going where angels fear to tread will not end well. "Flopping" by deciding that Schaefer should be capable of making a decision that is not based on revving up his eviscerator while screaming "MAXIMUM FUCK!" seems kinda good, strategy-wise and narrative-wise. Consistency is the snotling of small minds.

    Voting A as well, Shepard's tough, but he's not superhuman.

    I think root's advice many pages ago bears repeating:

    If there were ever a time to puss out, it would be now. A fate point isn't some kind of invulnerability potion, we're going to get the shit kicked out of us.

    Idiots, zealots and martyrs. Why did you have to pick the dumb option?

    I kinda doubt we'd succeed at 2, we know nothing of sorcery or exorcism after all. 3 is somwhat out of character, but makes sense if we want the story to turn into Black Crusade, since we already listened and followed his voice in our head(another stupid decision I might add).

    Of course 1 is likely instant deff.

    Imma say 3 but after this is over with we go ask the inquisitor for help in destroying Fomor for good.

    To be quite honest, this looks like a dead end on all accounts, just that each 'end' can be different, and differently horrible. Thus, 1 probably means we die heroes' deffs, 2 means we get to make an idiot out of ourselves with failed exorcism first, and 3 means we get to become a lovely daemonhost, what can go ronk with that? :balance:


    Thus, 1. Deff before dishumour. Let's get our skulls crushed under iron bootheels.

    3 is tempting, but how to trust a deamon with his own agendas? He does sound interesting however. Still I say we drive the scum away or die trying - 1

    I am willing to flipflop given good arguments.

    Flopped quickly to 3

    Frag it it is better to die for an Emprah than live for yourself... But with Demon on board we don't have any chance to actually Win this so 2. We can always die Heroes death later when we fail no reason to take 1.

    2) may as well use every tool we have. I can flop to 3 as well. Anyone who knows more about 40k think that it's odd for a demon to so openly offer it's true name? What's with that?

    Fuck it, I read it again and I am flopping to 3

    Imperial thought for the day: The end justifies the means.
